Through personal development planning (PDP) I have learned the skills appropriate for my job field and know how to act in a job setting. I believe PDP is good for identifying skills to be improved and used to further yourself in your career opportunities. The skills I've learned will be useful for years after the course is complete. I now know how to create a CV that should be a cut above the rest. Both relevant and useful. Excellent skills for future jobs. PDP is an essential element of the student experience in helping to develop the key skills and qualities that help students to successful engage with their university course. It is also facilitates the awareness of and preparation for future career opportunities helps raise their employability profile in the competitive job market and fosters an appreciation of reflective practice and the benefits of continued professional development. Senior Lecturer Sports Department Over the past nine years, that I have been involved with personal and professional development, I have seen students have had to take their PDP more seriously. Students used to only see the relevance of PDP after they had completed the process in their final year. Now as the job market is even harder to get into and students know that graduate positions are hard to find, there has been a vast increase of first year students taking their PDP more seriously and looking at ways in which they can gain experience in their skills to be able to add to their curriculum vitae whilst they are in university. Also, students are undertaking more and more voluntary experience and degree enrichment to be able to offer this to industry when they apply for employment. Senior lecturer

BUT - during my semi-retirement I'm still active in a role that has me teaching physicians to evaluate disability. The suggestions in the book, particularly how to manage time, are still extremely useful both for me and for the other physicians. Setting goals clearly is another useful group of very useful suggestions.
All in all I would recommend this book for any student - be it in a university setting or self-learning in this day of free internet courses!
